Tower 5.1

Tower is a Git client for OS X that makes using Git easy and more efficient. Users benefit from its elegant and comprehensive interface and a feature set that lets them enjoy the full power of Git.

Tower abstracts Git’s complexity in an easy-to-use interface. For example, lots of actions can be performed simply via drag-and-drop, and mistakes can be undone easily. Advanced users can increase their productivity with features like single line staging, submodule support, or the file history.

  • git-svn support
  • File history
  • git-flow support
  • Submodule support
  • git-lfs support
  • Blame view
  • Single-line staging (per-line committing)
  • Cherry-picking
  • Discard chunks/lines
  • Direct Github, Bitbucket, Gitlab, GitSwarm, Beanstalk, Visual Studio Team Services, Team Foundation Server and Rhodecode integration
  • Support for Bitbucket team accounts
  • Support for full-screen and Retina displays
  • Many powerful drag-and-drop features include merge, rebase, push /pull to/from remote, apply stash, create new branch, etc.

What’s New

Version 5.1:

  • Branch Naming: Tower now considers "main" to be a priority branch, just like "master". This means that it will be sorted at the top in the repository sidebar and any other ref listings
  • Performance: We optimized background operations for certain actions - such as checking out a revision or committing changes - resulting in a performance boost
  • Performance: We were also able to improve the background execution of Git processes. Repository loading times are now significantly faster
  • Undo: Undoing applying a stash reverted existing changes on the same file in the Working Copy. This has been fixed
  • Working Copy: For some users, single line staging failed if the "Ignore Whitespace" option was active. This works as expected now
  • Repository Finder: Excluded repositories are now cleaned up after the user changes the excluded file list
  • File History: The commit count is now shown correctly in File History
  • Remotes: The "Skip on Fetch All" option is now working as expected
  • Services: An endless loop affecting API calls for Azure DevOps service accounts has been fixed
